Talking about a custody dispute with your child

We have discussed many of the different challenges that married couples face on this blog, but custody disputes can be particularly tough for parents. In Battle Creek and other parts of Michigan, those going through a dispute over the custody of their children may encounter a wide variety of challenges, such as bitter courtroom battles and anxiety over how much time one will be able to spend with his or her child. However, these disputes can also affect children, which is why parents may want to talk about what is going on with their children.

Your child may have all sorts of questions with regard to custody issues. For example, they may be wondering how much time they will be able to spend with each parent, how the custody arrangement will affect their extracurricular activities or have other concerns. By taking the time to sit down and go over these matters with your child, you might be able to provide them with peace of mind and they may have an easier time dealing with the transition. You should try to reassure them that they will continue to be loved and do your best to answer their questions.

Sometimes, talking to children about these topics can be tough, especially for parents who have their own uncertainties or concerns. As a result, you should go over the details of your case and do your best to prepare. On our custody and visitation page, you can go over more info related to custody disputes.
